Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Recipe

Here’s a great recipe for a Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar! I found this recipe a while ago (it’s been around various blogs so I’m sorry if I don’t give correct credit to the FIRST person to come up with this recipe)! Anyway, I found it to be so interesting because it uses chickpeas. Now, I am not a chickpea person. I detest both the taste and the smell. But this one intrigued me so much that I just had to try it.

Plus, I was anxious to see how my Blendtec would perform with a thicker batter. This recipe called for hardly any liquid. So I gave it a shot!

1) Blend the following ingredients in a high-speed blender or food processor (I used the “batter” setting on my Blendtec):

  • 1 can (or approximately 1-1/2 cups) Chickpeas or White Beans (make sure to drain and rinse very well)
  • 1/2 cup Gluten-Free Oats
  • 3 tablespoons Applesauce (I used sweetened)
  • 2 tablespoons Oil of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon Gluten-Free Vanilla
  • 3/4 cups Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt

2) Once the batter is well-blended, pour into a separate mixing bowl and mix in 3/4 cup of chocolate chips.  Pour into a buttered round pan. Bake at 350 for approximately 25 minutes. You can serve this warm (although it’s a bit mushy) or let it sit in the refrigerator. We found that it is delicious cold as well.

This is a wonderful recipe, and no one would ever guess that there are legumes of any kind in it! And the Blendtec performed excellently. ;)

As with all recipes, make sure your ingredients are gluten-free and meet your family’s dietary needs!

  1. Hi Janelle! Just a quick question – when you say a “round pan” what size do you mean? Thanks for your help!
